Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The major complaint about The GIMP is that it uses a somewhat non-standard interface. There are many different windows for all your different functions and whatnot instead of a more familiar all-in-one approach. Some people prefer the photoshop interface as it is more like the interfaces they already know. The GIMP also is in need rgb->cmyk features that are present in photoshop. Proper CMYK is needed for The GIMP to be a replacement for PS in print work. As it is now The GIMP is just as good, if not better than PS in functionality in all areas except being able to be used for print work in which proper RGB > CMYK is needed. For web graphics or your standard photoshop work it is more than up to the task.

You could always try and figure out Wine, and you can run a copy of photoshop right on your linux machine. I had bad luck with older copies of wine, but the newer ones worked no problem for me. I like the Gimp, but after 4 years of using Photoshop, it is just more realistic for me to run it, instead of Gimp.
Well, that's true what Read_Icculus said. You have to definitely create a workspace to work only with The Gimp. If you mix it with other programs while you are working in the same worksapce (such as mp3 players) and do an "alt + tab" to switch program you will switch to another open part of The Gimp. It's hard to explain if you've never tried Gimp, but try and you will see . Other then that I really consider it as a quality program and strange it's still is keep free . Same goes to Blender3D, a cool modeler multiplatform, free and if you find a modeler with that quality and so small (around 2megas, including renders and a game engine up to 2.25 version )for any other system please tell me
